March to Gov. Snyder's home planned for MLK Day
Critics of a law that puts managers in charge of distressed Michigan cities say they will march to the home of Gov. Rick Snyder.
A coalition of pastors and civil rights activists says the law seems to target black communities. The march is expected to include a protest at Snyder's home in Superior Township, east of Ann Arbor.
Organizers say it will be on Jan. 16, the public holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
Emergency managers are in place in Benton Harbor, Pontiac, Flint and Detroit schools. Detroit's finances are also under scrutiny, the first step to a manager possibly being appointed at city hall.
The Snyder administration says race isn't a factor. It says it's simply assigning managers to cities that have poor finances.
